A COMPANY in Milton Keynes has donated more than half a million pounds to Cancer Research UK.

Towergate Risk Solutions has raised £541,000 through fundraising events and donations to support a team of world-class scientists, headed up by Professor Adrian Harris who are carrying out vital research looking at ways to block tumours from hijacking the blood supply.

Joe Thelwell, managing director of Towergate Risk Solutions Milton Keynes said, “One in three of us will get cancer at some point in our lives. Most of us know someone who has had cancer and has perhaps had the support of a hospice. So we are truly thankful to our staff and clients for their hard work and donations to help support this fantastic cause.”

Professor Adrian Harris said, “We’re starting to see some really exciting results from our research. I really welcome Towergate Charitable Foundation’s commitment to support our work for another two years.”
